Giornate Nazionali di Corrosione e Protezione dei Materiali: Milan, June 28-30, 2017

PoliLaPP ha organizzato in collaborazione con AIM, Associazione Italiana di Metallurgia, la XII edizione del convegno nazionale dedicato alla “Corrosione e Protezione dei Materiali”, svoltosi presso l’aula Rogers del Politecnico di Milano.
Questa edizione delle Giornate Nazionali di Corrosione e Protezione, coordinata da Fabio Bolzoni, Marco Ormellese e MariaPia Pedeferri, per la prima volta nella storia di questo convegno, ha visto il numero dei partecipanti superare quota 200. Numerosi ricercatori provenienti dalle diverse università italiane e operatori appartenenti al mondo industriale hanno presentato più di 100 memorie orali, suddivise nelle 12 sessioni tecnico-scientifiche. La sessione “corrosione delle opere in calcestruzzo armato” è stata dedicata al ricordo del nostro collega prof. Luca Bertolini, prematuramente scomparso.
Il Dipartimento di Chimica, Materiali e Ingegneria Chimica “G. Natta” ha avuto un ruolo centrale, con ben 20 interventi. Durante il convegno è stata consegnata al prof. Luciano Lazzari la medaglia di titanio, istituita dall’AIM nel 2002, e in questa occasione intitolata alla memoria del prof. Pietro Pedeferri.
Sono stati inoltre organizzati tre workshop dedicati alla protezione catodica delle reti idriche interrate (a cura di APCE), alla corrosione negli impianti petrolchimici (a cura di NACE Italia Milano Section) e all’utilizzo degli acciai inossidabili nel settore chimico (a cura del Centro Inox).
Una selezione di memorie presentate al convegno sono state pubblicate sulla rivista “La Metallurgia Italiana”, che ha dedicato il numero di luglio alla tematica della corrosione.
